I take a walk around my house,
and on the grass, I see a mouse!
I’m not the only one who sees–
a cat is sitting in the trees!
The cat stares down, down at the mouse.
Then the mouse runs, the cat goes pounce!
I can’t look at them anymore;
I run back home. I close the door.
But when I look back at the tree,
the mouse has climbed up, totally free!
The cat wanders around my house;
it looks but cannot find the mouse.
I feel bad. The cat’s hungry, too.
I open my fridge; what can it chew?
I find a sausage link that’ll work;
I open the door. “Cat, want some pork?”
The cat meows at me gratefully.
It eats all the food gleefully.
I pet it, let it go away.
I think I saved a mouse today!
